Sorry if you get this email twice.  The first one may be too large for
binutils mailing list.  It is also at

https://github.com/hjl-tools/binutils-gdb/commit/df9716667487e6df69264dd976ec7a3451433e3c

Rewrite NOP generation for fill and code alignment by:

1. Add a 11-byte NOP with another 0x66 prefix.
2. Remove the multi-byte NOP entries which consist of 2 instructions.
3. Select proper NOPs based on ISA and processor tuning.
4. Generate multiple NOPs with the longer NOPs first followed by the
shorter NOP.
5. Use jump for larger NOP padding:
   a. > 8 bytes (2 NOPs) in 16-bit mode.
   b. > 14 bytes (2 NOPs) for older processors.
   c. > 77 bytes (7 NOPs) for newer processors.
6. Update MAX_MEM_FOR_RS_ALIGN_CODE to 4095.

Any comments?
